Sorcha and Red were magic.

Yes, there are bad things that happen but they always do in most fantasy books. Mine until death and beyond. They do an awesome job. Yet, my feelings of awe for this piece are mixed in with guilt It is, for some reason, extraordinarily difficult for me to explain my feelings concerning this novel. Liadan is a healer like her mother, and kind and forthright in her dealings with others.

Son of the Shadows

Daughter of the Forest. I enjoyed this 2nd book in the Sevenwaters series. Niamh could have so easily been thrown away as a simple prop to show how virtuous and unselfish Liadan is by comparison. I was expecting something a bit more momentous and final, and less – psychological, I suppose.

It will be safe in her hands. So I went into this book with very high hopes. And so she is determined to use her skills to save the man in marilier, and then return home to her family as soon as is humanly possible.


Jun 10, Pauline rated it liked it Shelves: But you are not in their scheme. Liadan learns Bran’s hidden truth about his childhood during her fight to bring him back from the torture inflicted on him.

I suspect this is why I got through this book so quickly.

Juliet Marillier’s second series is based on the first Viking voyage from Norway to Orkney, and weaves history and folklore into a saga of adventure, romance and magic. That’s all we can do. I am so in love with this series. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. I cannot learn this.

Son of the Shadows : Juliet Marillier :

Cathy We do find out what happens to him in “Seer of Sevenwaters. Folks stood hushed around the hearth to hear her tell them after a long day’s work, and marveled at the bright tapestries she wove with her words. Booklist in said that “Marillier’s virtuosic pacing and vivid, filmic style make this an engaging continuation of one of the last year’s best fantasies”.

Liandan is able to voice more independence than the other females in the book, but her life is still focused mostly on fixing problems that the men have caused. Perfect, but not to the point of being annoying. That may be why this book felt a loooot like the last one: When I was gearing up for the Buddy Read, several people told me that they loved this book even more than Daughter of the Forest.


My biggest issue also has to do with Villain, but be marilllier, it’s a o One bird brave enough to sing of tall trees and open skies and freedom.

Son of the Shadows : Book Two of the Sevenwaters Trilogy

Showing of reviews. It was really great to read about Liadan and learn what happened at the Sevenwaters after the first book.

And my dislike of Liadan was based on an vague impression that I can’t support with evidence. The prose sln beautiful as always, but the constant repetition of the belief that true love does not exist, but is an enchantment, a spell the woman casts on dhadows man so he loves and wants to please her at all times, pisses me off!!!

Warrior’s plans, however, are usually devastating and at the same time love can generate hope but at the same time complicate things much more. It felt like he was gone forever and I missed him.

But not in ours, for my mother made a magic with her words that drew all under its spell. Liadan has a twin brother who is being raised to be the next Lord of Sevenwaters and with whom she has this deep mental connection and closeness.
